Biography: Marie Worre Hastrup Holm
Holm, of Arhus, Denmark, used her residency at The Studio to add to her series Reminisce, free-standing glass stones which offer a visual and tactile experience. Twenty of the pieces Holm produced became part of a major exhibition of Danish glass later that year at Holsterbro Art Museum and Sofienholm, Copenhagen. Holm describes this collection as blown forms which are “diamond cut and tenaciously carved with the sandblaster to create rough organic marks, surfaces are etched and edges polished.” She has been blowing glass since 1992, producing the work of well-known glass artists in Denmark, England and Iceland, while developing her own work, style and artistic voice. In addition, Holm co-curated, designed and oversaw the exhibition “Wearing Glass, Contemporary Jewellery and Body Adornment,” which opened in February in London.
